[IC] ØBLIVIATE • FRL TKL O-Ring Mounted Keyboard
« on: Tue, 31 October 2023, 18:57:36 »



ØBLIVIATE
Monoblock Case FRL TKL O-Ring Mounted Keyboard





0. Status
Prototype #2 currently being tested, as we eager to lower unit price, another round of prototype will be needed to test overall design and colors.





1. Intro
Hello everyone! I'm excited to introduce Øbliviate, a FRL TKL keyboard layout featuring an o-ring mount within a single monoblock design. The concept behind Øbliviate is to deliver a 60% O-ring keyboard experience by dividing the alphanumeric cluster and navigation cluster into separate sections. The hypothesis behind this design is that by having separate sections between each cluster, the inner wall will create a friction fit with the PCB and plate, impacting both sound and typing feel.

Interest check is now open.

Is this the set design now? Personally I much prefer the original front with the straight cherry lip. Kinda a deal breaker for me TBH, but GLWIC!
